Dependable and fun

ReviewI bought this car with 87k on it, now it has 187k. My only major repairs have been a new alternator and new brakes, as well as the normal timing belts etc. Showing its age now: incurable oil leak, A/C has leak, heater takes forever to pump out warmth, seats falling apart. Lots of fun to drive. I get around 35 mpg, mostly highway (where have car makers been the last 15 years if my ancient car gets better mileage than new ones?!). That said, I won't let my 20- year-old kid drive it: HORRIBLE blind spots, dim headlights and freezing in winter. Plus, at 6', he hardly fits in it. Also the engine is a little underpowered when the AC is on, especially on start-up on hills. The back seat is a joke.
Best FeaturesSmooth handling, reliability, economy, decent power, nimble and fun to drive.
Worst FeaturesBrighter headlights, better visibility (still a complaint about the 2008s), bigger backseat, better heater, tighter turn circle.
